  1. Reading media “ may take several minutes” normal?

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have had had my 2015 Kia Soul base (with UVO/ e services ) for about a week now and notice that when I connect my iPhone 6 s plus to the USB with a cable to play music it displays a message on my Kia radio screen and loading spiral on that says “ reading media may take several minutes”...
  2. odometer reading question

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Alright guys, I have a 2014 base. When I press the trip button I get to a screen on the odometer that reads E/T and then a time. What is that time calculating? The amount of drive time I have driven since last reset?

  4. "True" MPGs vs the gage reading

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Is it just me, or have others realized that by doing the math on your miles driven since last fill up, dividing by the gallons just filled, you get a different avg mpg from what the little dash guage shows? Recently I posted I was in fact "stoked" at the avg MPGs of my little beast, whereas...
  5. I have problem reading the odometer and how often should I get oil change?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello, I would like to ask a couple of questions. I have a 2012 KIA SOUL. I took my car to mechanic for my first oil change. The mechanic did not understand difference between the trip and odometer reading. I told him that the Odometer reads 3000 miles. He said it read 10,000 miles. I...
  6. Inserting CD w/ MP3s = Reading Error...??

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I'd like to play MP3s from a CD. I figured I could just load MP3s onto a CD, pop it in, it would read it as MP3 files and begin to play them. However, when I slip the disc in, it studies it for a few seconds, tells me it's a "Reading Error" and spits it out. I've scoured this forum but...

  10. Temp reading on dash (not water temp) is questionable.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I thought the temp reading on the dash was the outside air. It's always higher than what is stated on radio. Is the sensor located on the dash right near the windshield? Honda uses that spot to control the A/C output to cool the cabin area as accurately as possible to reduce fuel usage...
  11. USB does not appear to be reading.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all Not sure if this is an established issue or if im just doing stuff wrong. I bought a small 4 gig USB drive to load music on for our new SOul (which I love BTW) We got the 4u burner edition. When I throw the formatted USB drive in I get the message "Reading USB" and it seems to hang...
  12. For anyone reading these and thinking of getting a soul...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Just a little heads up. It's always easier to find complaints as opposed to praise. Working in "customer service", I've noticed on constant, regardless of it being convenience, retail, food service, or what have you: A guest who is treated fair and leaves pleased will tell one person. A guest...
  13. Head Unit- Stopped Reading USB drive until Ignition Cycle

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I was on a trip back from the Badger game yesterday listening to my music on a thumb drive. When I went to skip ahead a few songs, it locked up for a bit, then just said "Reading USB" on the screen. Every once in a while it would cut over to SatRad for a second, then back to "Reading USB"...
